The 47th Annual Great Lakes Invitational is fast approaching, with four high-profile NCAA squads set to descend upon Joe Louis Arena on December 29 and 30 for a single-elimination-style tournament that has become a holiday tradition for hockey fans. In addition to four action-packed college hockey games, attendees of this year's GLI are also in store for a wide variety of unique contests and promotions as Olympia Entertainment's 2011-12 'College Hockey in the D' schedule kicks off with a bang.

"Science of Hockey" coming to The Joe

Host school Michigan Tech University will be setting up an interactive exhibition entitled 'The Science of Hockey' on the main concourse at JLA for fans to visit throughout the duration of the 2011 GLI. Presented by MTU's Mind Trekkers Student Outreach Program, 'The Science of Hockey' will open at 2:00 p.m. on both December 29 and 30 and will remain open until the end of the first period of both of the tournament's afternoon (4:00 p.m.) games. Admission to 'The Science of Hockey' is free with the purchase of any GLI ticket.
